Globalization is only one of the forces at work in modern society. Individualization, for instance, is another one. Now, from a psychological point of view, underlying these forces are needs, there is a need for globalization, as there is a need for individualization. As Stephen Carr already noticed in 1967, human needs often work in pairs of opposites. There is a need for freedom ànd a need for bondage, a need for privacy and for social contacts, a need to go out, to explore boundaries, to seek adventure, and a need to feel at home in a place, to be able to withdraw from the hectic of modern life. In France there is a television program called 'Roots and Wings'. Man needs both.
